Bringing players into the sport.

How do you do this? I bring them to a field and pay for their costs for a day. I just try to make it a positive experience. alien

getting back to your original line, sky,thats a greta thing to do, paying for your friends to try their hand at paintball - more of us should endevour to do that! KEEP IT UP!

i get other organisations to pay for them - the police, local authorities, anyone with lots of cash. the police have paid for all the players on my last 8 days of sessions and they're payingfor some during the summer holidays as well. i also GIVE loads of paint away for free to enhance the experience for players with not much cash either. i hate to think they go away wanting more!

LOL! isnt that the point? make them want more so they come back later?
If you were trying to satisfy every customer so they didnt want more you would have a hard time keeping paint with me there

lol ...but i guess you wouldnt be in te same groups as these young people who come from dissadvantaged backgrounds, so its a different principle to running the site as a business, currently is more of a social engagement tool

gloves arent neccesary, but nice to start with. I dunno about the marker itself. seems sketchy to me especially at $70

Then again i don't even look at low-mid range markers anymore anyway.

yes we do!

Power kiting / fencing / Powerisers / Inline hockey / ice hockey / Ultimate frisbee / handball / soccer & Panna soccer / rugby / kayaking / climbing / mountain biking / basketball / fishing /

i'm personally qualified in coaching all of them - except climbing / fishing / mountain biking. i buy in people to deliver those for me.

i have 7 staff who are also qualified in most of the other sports as well ... mind you, it might be a different story next year when all the external funding ends ... oh well LOL
